Faith Formation Team

Our faith formation program serves children, youth, and adults of our community – wherever they are in their faith journey (English, Spanish, Vietnamese). Some 400 elementary and middle school students are enrolled in the Religious Education programs. Teens participate in the confirmation process. Adults take advantage of enrichment programs offered through the year. The members of the catechetical team, all volunteers, are the people who make this happen. Their commitment to our parish is their manner of giving back to God in gratitude for his generosity. None of this is possible without a faith formation team.
